KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 16): Ex-prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak (pictured) feels that the current movement control order or MCO 2.0 is not strict enough and could result in an extension, FMT reported today.
“The MCO this time does not seem firm; it is ineffective and will not achieve its goals. Too many exceptions have been granted,” he was reported as saying by the news portal in a Facebook posting.
He gave the examples of stores selling furniture, jewellery and luxury goods still being allowed to open for business while factories and the construction sector were also “operating as usual”.
“With the government’s aid for the people, let us suffer for the first two weeks so the healthcare system and frontliners can recover, and to avoid the MCO being extended over and over again.
“Short-term pain is better than long-term suffering,” added Najib.
